    Sten Mk V - GBB from Northeast Airsoft

    ATM I cannot find any reviews other than some PR stuff on YouTube. But it looks blooming gorgeous and if I had the money.... https://www.airsoftworld.net/northeast-airsoft-sten-mk-v-gbb-airsoft-rifle-all-steel-with-wood-stock-grips-pre-order.html

    TM 1911 Trigger Issue

    Cheers guys - it's the leaf spring I think. The pistol is firing 9/10 so I'll leave it for now - fitting the dual safety was one big PITA I don't want to go through again.

    TM 1911 Trigger Issue

    This has me stumped - I have a TM MEU in a Guarder frame that I've been gradually upgrading. Installed a new trigger and all was good, installed an new hammer and it was sticking so dropped that out, popped in the original and all seemed okay but... Now when I pull the trigger, the pistol clicks but does not fire. If I release my grip, squeeze and pull the trigger then eventually it will fire but only once. Any ideas? I have a feeling it may be something to do with the sear spring but out of ideas and don't want to strip it again until I know what the problem is.

    Anyone still around from the old days?

    The King Arms M1928 is proper - right dimensions and engraving etc. I love mine. http://www.kingarms.com/product_detail.php?id=260 Oh and I joined about ten years ago but don't skirmish ATM.

    WE M1 Carbine

    Please someone tell them to remove the flipping bayonet lugs. They didn't exist until well after WWII. BTW this looks exactly the same as the ASG which was a copy of the Marushin. Both were very fragile in my experience - unless you could track down some (rare as hens teeth) steel parts. Mine was fitted into a gorgeous 1943 Springfield marked genuine wood stock but was only really usable in milsim WWII games.

    All the prop guns in that awful Alien Vs Predator movie were airsoft replicas, supplied by Wolf.

    Luckily the S&T Sterling has the easiest QC spring set up I've seen - 2mins and your under 350. Or well over Mine came with a spring that looked like it doubled as truck suspension... !

    WE TA 2015, P90 review

    Have a word with JD Airsoft - last time I was in there, Phil (owner) said that all the WE GBB rifles now come with a red valve / BBU that keeps FPS below 350. Apparently WE had a lot of issues with buyers wanting downgrades / stuffing things ups with DIY 'fixes'.

    WE TA 2015, P90 review

    Darn it! Just when I'm dropping all my modern (dull=rails) kit, WE do this... Will wait for for the Euro version (lower FPS valve as std these days, chaps) and them possibly get the 90s black kit out of the loft.

    Evike - won't ship to the UK?

    I've checked all their shipping policies and cannot see anything that says they won't ship to the UK. In fact, during the order process they state that shipping to the UK needs UKARA. I can get the gun elsewhere but (a) it's 30% more and ( they don't have the mags so I'll still end up paying fat postage from the US whatever. Emailed Evike but <fruit> all back from them so far.
  14. Just had an order bounced and refunded by Evike because it's "against UK customs rules" or something. It's just an AEG and I've shipped stuff in from the US before... What the <fruit> is going on? Gave them my UKARA and as they offer a 2tone service they must ship guns to the UK. They refunded the PP account but I still want the gun. Should I take this personally or does anyone from Evike use this forum?

    Anyone used these guys and if so: Do I need to have the parcel with my UKARA writ large upon it to clear UK customs? As they're in the EU will I get stung with any import charges? How quick is their Free Shipping? Cheers!
